Peeped at the oak tree and just love the little spot lights on the links. Would love to know the code for that! Can you share?
A tad off topic but sure
The first thing was to create the image. I saved it as a Gif file twice the size as the menu bar with the bottom half transparent. In CSS, I set the image as a background for each link and positioned it so the transparent part of the image is showing. Once the mouse hovers over it, CSS repositions it so the portion with the actual image shows.
I could show you my code, but it actually has a bug in it that I need to hunt down and squash. It should be showing the spotlight constantly if you are in the corresponding section of the site but it isn't doing that.
Instead, I'll point you to the A List Apart article I originally learned the trick from: [a href=\"http://www.alistapart.com/articles/slidingdoors2]Sliding Doors Part II[/url]. It covers some additional stuff which I didn't implement but the rollover trick is in there.
